Global Commercial Seeds Market Size To Reach $72.09 Billion By 2020

June 2015 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global market for commercial seeds is expected to reach USD 72.09 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing population coupled with reduction in arable land is expected to boost the demand for GM/bioseeds which are superior to conventional seeds in terms of disease resistance and yield. However, in spite of the advantages offered by GM seeds, the market faces considerable restraint in the form of government regulations in certain countries against the use of GM seeds

Corn/maize was the largest consumed commercial seed, accounting for USD 20.07 billion of revenue in 2013. The growth in corn can be attributed to its increased use as livestock feed and in ethanol production. Soybean was the next largest commercial seed form accounting for revenue in excess of USD 8 billion in 2013. Soybean is a cheaper source of protein and is being increasingly used in the medical field. Other common commercial seeds include cotton, canola, cereals and rice.
